screenshot of error in ham radio deluxe

This screen shot is posted here only to allow the help people at HRD access to the photo.  I have difficulties in getting the screen shot to upload to the HRD forums.  It may well be my computer, it is old, and/or  user error on my part; I am older than the computer; HIHI.
Here is the problem:

I am using HRD version 5.0 build 2777.
Operating system windows xp, I have office 2010 on the computer.

When I enter a contact into the log entry window it shows the distance between my station and the one I am contacting.  I have everything set up in miles.  However, when I actually send the entry to my log it shows up as a different distance. 
The screen shot below, shows the log entry window with a contact I made yesterday.  It shows the distance as 945 miles.  Look at the log entry behind the entry window and you will see the contact distance listed a 7665.  This figure is too large for it to be in kilometers. 
In examining my log I see all of the my recent contacts in the continental US are listed with the same distance of 7665.  This has happened to all us contacts made since 12/17/10 when I upgraded to the current beta.
Any suggestions?  You can click on the image to enlarge it.

HRD really is a fantastic program.  I don;t use all of it's capabilities but hope to in the future.

wishing you good DX and 73
